Mohamed Salah is out for payback in the Champions League final

Mohamed Salahsobbed his way off the field and witnessed the rest of the game on TV in the locker room as Liverpool fell 3-1 without its most probable scorer. He might simply have responded diplomatically, as most soccer players do. Check out complete details about it below.

Mohamed Salah is out for payback in the Champions League final

He simply couldn’t. Salah was asked minutes after Liverpool reached the Champions League final three weeks ago whether he had a choice for which side he would face in the title match in suburban Paris. “Yes,” Salah said, extending his neck and rotating his head from side to side as though preparing for another game. “I’d like to play in Madrid.”

Salah definitely remembers what happened in the 2018 final in Kyiv against Real Madrid. In the first half, he squabbled with Sergio Ramos and tumbled severely on the ground, dislocating his left shoulder. Some compared it to a wrestling move by Ramos, who looked to pin Salah’s right arm and tumble the forward to the ground.

Salah sobbed his way off the field and watched the rest of the game on TV in the locker room as Liverpool fell 3-1 without its most likely scorer.

Ramos is no longer at Real Madrid four years later, having recently finished an injury-plagued debut season with Paris Saint-Germain.

This did not deter Salah from tweeting, “we have a score to settle,” when Madrid joined Liverpool in the final on Saturday following an incredible second-leg comeback against Manchester City in the quarterfinals.

“I think it’s retribution time,” Salah remarked in another interview about playing Real Madrid.

The dude is on a mission.  Possibly in much more capacities than one.

After all, he has yet to sign a new contract with Liverpool, so this may be his last final with the club. Negotiations appear to be at a standstill. Salah has one year left on his contract and is ready to communicate with other teams in January.
